The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just released a proposal to reduce methane and other harmful pollutants from new and existing sources in the oil and natural gas industry. These protections are an important step in the right direction, but they must be strengthened before they are finalized to ensure EPA meets this moment to tackle the climate crisis and communities living near fossil fuel infrastructure.
Oil and gas production, processing, and transmission pollutes our climate, air, water and communities - we must transition off fossil fuels completely! Until that vision of a fossil fuel free economy is realized, we must do everything we can to limit the harm.
There is no time to waste. Methane pollution from the oil and gas sector is accelerating the pace of climate change and harming the health of our families and communities — and it is a problem that is only getting worse.
We cannot miss out on this opportunity to cut methane pollution, safeguard public health, and act on climate! EPA's engagement process is an opportunity to make your voice heard, and call for bold action at this critical time!
Tell EPA to enact the strongest protections possible to cut methane from oil and gas now!
